It has been reported that West Ham United coach Teddy Sheringham has hailed the form of Diafra Sakho.
The 24 year old, who arrived from Metz just before the transfer window closed, has scored five goals in each of five Premier League starts – a record for the East London club.
“First of all, he has an eye for a goal. He can score a goal first and foremost,” Sheringham told the club’s official website.
“Secondly, and more importantly, he wants to score a goal and he puts himself in positions where he can score a goal.
“He has enthusiasm all over the pitch, which makes him a team favourite and, at the same time, a crowd favourite,” he continued. “He is up there in the right or left wing position, up the middle and then tracking back to the full-back positions. He pops up everywhere doing something for the team, which makes him invaluable.
“When you look up front and see two boys working their socks off to close people down and stop their full-backs getting out, then it’s invaluable for the team and you get a boost from that.
“On top of that work-rate, he is scoring goals and is full of confidence and long may it continue.”
